Excellent performance, just like you'd expect for a bootleg from the final run of Lovetown shows. Bono alters and improvises lyrics (or snippets stuff that isn't listed) on lots of songs, including The Unforgettable Fire, All Along the Watchtower ('sex, money, rock n roll' outro), All I Want Is You, and an extended Running To Stand Still.


Sounds great! Easily listenable and quite clear.
Recording: "Still Running" - 4.5 stars


'Welcome to the rock show where the audience is louder than the band.'


Another Lovetown classic. Give it a listen sometime, there's a lot to enjoy here. and it's great-sounding. The only real letdown is that New Year's Day was left out of the set.

- I Will Follow (extended)
- The Unforgettable Fire
- All Along the Watchtower
- All I Want Is You (might have a Sweetest Thing snippet)
- Bullet the Blue Sky
- Running To Stand Still (extended)
- She's a Mystery To Me
